BEN S. MILLER.
The nomination of Ben S. Miller by

liveliest satisfaction in all the counties
of that district, which is probably the
most populous of any other senatorial
district in the stale. Miller ia repre

Eagle takes pleasure in congratulat
ing the people of Harper and .Sumner
on the selection of a man who will
honor them und himself at all times on
the floor of the state senate.

Tho Wichita Eagi.k is out in favor
of the resubmission of the prohibitory

exclusive charge ot the amendment,
liberal republicans arc perfectly wil

WHERE TO DRAW THE LINE.
The Sedgwick Pantograph tltiuks
that the editor of the Eagle makes a
mistake in the largeness of the lati
tude given bushwhacker, soreheads.
That paper Bays:
"But we do believe in party dici
plinc. When Republicans deliberately
bolt the party, they should not be al
lowed seats in a Republican caucus or
convention, unless it be back seats,
until they can demonstrate that they
arc not bushwhackers. As long as
they arc permitted to conic and go at
will their influence will be demoraliz
ing, and ihey will bo an clemcut if
weakness in the parly. We hope,
iiicrciorc. mat the agle will insist
that these bushwhackers shall not
longer he permitted to disturb the
harmony ofgenuino Republican work.
We should rather prefer defeat for a
time with true-blue Republicans, than
to placo our political fortunes in the
hands of such bushwhackers."
The criticism is very largely just
and the Pantagraph in its position
measurably correct. But we are one
of those who cannot bear to punish
beyond the first tear of repentance.
Republicans who in their anger de
clared the next few days after the ad
journment of . the state convention
that they would vote the Democratic
ticket, Glick and all, rather than
stand by the ronstitution and law of
the 6talc, but who after cooliug oil
(av their error, we would in no wise
punish or even withdraw from tliein
our confidence. Republicans have an
undoubted rigid .to protect against
the action of the party whenever they
are honctly convinced that the party
is wrong, and they may do so and ef
fectively without destroying their
parly tics. Until a protester declares
that he is no longer a Republican but
a Democrat, he should bo treated as a
political brother and confided in
MR. AND MRS. BLAINE AS SCHOOL
TEACHERS IN KENTUCKY.
To the Kdltoi of the (llobe-Ilemocrat.
Dallas, Tex., Aug. 9, 1884. My
father, Thornton P. Johnson, was the
principal of the Female Collegiate In
stitute in Georgetown, Kentucky.,
from 1810 to 1850, and during that
time he was assisted by Mrs. Blaine,
then Miss Harriet B. St an wood, ami

her sister having been engaged al an
earlier dale. These sisteis came out
from Augusta, Maine, and were with
my father first and last about eight

Standing and finely educated; well
qualified as teachers, and much re
spected by all who knew them. We
were much attached to them on Miss
Caroline more as a i dative than as an
Mrs. Blaine was the brightest of the
lliree Maters, mentally and otherwise,
and was much admired by all ac
quaintances, pupils and associates,
bhe was a great reader of English lit

miicinbcr were extensive and select,
among the very bent of the English
classics and current literature, Car
lylc, Macaulay and Goldsmith being
her favorites, and her library con
tained many valuable books. " While
her elder sister, Miss Caroline (affec
tionately called by us Miss Caddy) was
more authoritative and commanding,
Miss Harriett was more pleasant and
populai and a universal favorite among
the pupils who looked upon her as a

My father organized the Western
Militarv Institute at Georgetown.
Ky., in 1847, and I think in 1818 Mr.
Blaine came out from . Washington
College, Pennsylvania, and took' the
position of assistant professor of lan
guages (Latin and Greek), tho senior
prolcssor being a Mr. Xcwcll, a gradu
ate of Oxford Unhereity, England.
Mr. Blaine was then about 19 years of

a scholar and a gentleman, and soon
Droved his title to both. In 1819. no

Teun., Mr. Blaine succeeded to his
chair of languages, ami was associated
with the institute in 1850, nt Blue

both in Kentucky. Mr. Blaine was the
youngest member of the facultr, but
soon assumed an important lnlliieuce
and control, and was always after

the body of professors, and my father,

Prof. Blaiue, and I never think of him
but what 1 remember the many warm

and plcasnut to those who tried to
learn, but was quick to detect laziness
and scornful to trillcrs. Out of the
class-room he was genial, cordial and
social, the best company in the world ;
a general lavorue ami sought iy all
who loved to listen to his conversation,
sparkling w'th wit and anecdote;
quick at repartee, great at argument,
a rapid talker and lull of fun. lie ex
celled as a lecturer or an essayist, at.d
as a debater had no equal. " He was
also a No. 1 mathematician, and used
to put us through ltom don and Le

class on rhetoric and belles-lettres, anil

827, A. !).. down to Queen Victoria in
1 think innolitlcs Mr. Blaiue was an
admirer of Henry Clay, of Kentucky,
and Tom Ewing, of Ohio, and in re
ligion he wns a Catholic in that con
struction of the wortl which means,
"not sectarian; not exclush c, but lib
eral." He was a handoiue min at
that age, well built, walking ami tnnv.

noting energy and detci miii.t ion; was
a good eatca, aud a judge ol a julep
I think he was too imptticntfor chc.
but just right for a quiet ramo of
draw poker, not that I ever saw him
play a card. We were all fond of him,
ami my parents relied upon him in
trying tunes and critical circum
stances. Among the pupils of his at the West
ern Military lustituc at Georgetown
in 1819, at Bluo Lick in 1850 and Dren
nou in 1851 wcro cadets from every
southern state, -many of whom shed
their blood for the "lost cans," but I
am certain that the survivors feel
proud of their old professor aud of his
success in political life.
Prof. Blaiue was fond of buggy rid
ing, and was a good "whip.-' 'I well
remember ou one occasiou retu ruing
with him iu a buggy freni Millersburg
to Blue Lick on one Sunday after mid
night. I was soon asleep, and we liaa
cone about fen miles out of twenty
when something awoke me, and I
round the Horses running away lur
iously along the smooth turnpike and
Mr. Blaine sound asleep with the lines
between his feet. As soon as 1 could
arouse him, I spraug from the buggy;
away down the road i could near mm
the buggy oft the piko and into a stone
wall on the roadside.
Wc repaired the somewhat trifling
damage to the harness, and got along
pretty well, but tiie Horse was very
restive and nervous, going through
tho long Wcrnwag bridge over the
Licking river about a mile from Blue
On another occasion, riding with
Mr. Blaine from Paris to Georgetown
after night, our horse stopped sudden
ly and refused to go forward an inch
in spite ot coaxing and tlic whip; Mr,
Blaine got down to discover the cause;
he found wc were ou a perpendicular
brink ot a creek bank, tho bridge Hav
ing been taken away that day for re
pairs, and no light or barricades being
pdt up to prevent accident to travel
lers. One can sec by his signature to my
diploma as professor of Latin in 1851
at Drennon Springs, aud also iu the
manuscript of my oration of the date,
how bold aud vigorous was his style
of penmanship, a good indicatiou of
his manner at that tunc.
For about seven mouths the saloons
iu Osage Citv were closed and wc had
peace, quiet, order and no drunkenness
except iu a lew instances, in which tlic
owners of liquid remnants drank too
much of their own medicine. Since
the late decision of the supreme court,
which prevents an information being
filed except upon the sworn statement
of a compcicni witness against the de
fendant, several saloon iu this place
have been re-opened, and the sale of
liquors is almost as public as it was
prior to the adoption of the pro
hibitory amendment. Several of
these places are open and run
by the very men who closed up list
Decembcraud pledged their honor not
to open again. Iu the last two or
three weeks there have been more dis
turbances, more drunkenucs. more
brawls and lights, than occurred dur
ing the seven preceding mouths. Uu
the nights of the l.Vh and 16th insi.
the rioting and drunkenness ami fight
ing was kept up unlit after miduight.
Tho night watchman, who appears to
be too timid for such service, was
openly defied, and only two arrests
wcie'made, when there should have
been twenty. One man was knocked
down with a club and badly hurt.
The saloons stand in their own light.
It seems to he their purpose to make
the business as odious as possible.
Instead of trying to preserve the
peace, they aro'now carried ou with a
greater disregard of public sentiment
than ever before. Osag'i City Free
